Heater just buts out cold air

Any leaks in the system(do you have to add water regularly?)? Check the heater control valve- it allows hot water to circulate through the heater core. Could be bad.

1999 ford 4x4 5.4 water from back of eng on pass side

If this is plain water and not antifreeze this is normal if you have been using your air-conditioner the drain for your a/c is on the right side. If the humidity is high you will see water dripping from the right side. You can try leaving your a/c off and see if you still have the same problem. If it is green or red in color you have a antifreeze leak more than likely a heater hose or heater control valve and possibly a heater core. Have the system pressure tested to pinpoint the leak.

Good Luck Hope this answer your question

1999 grand jeep cherokee limited air con prob water coming out vent behind driver seat and water drops noted under glove box front passenger side ???? what to do air con recently regased works well but...

You have a leak in your air conditioning compressor Your system works on the reheat principle All air passing through the system is cooled and reheated before it enters the cabin this sould be dehumidified air but it passes through the heater core and sence the air is not dehumidified you are getting condansation as the air flows the heater core that is heated by the engine heat and the water is from condencation because of the leak in the ac compressor The unit is a press fit in the center of it and fials unfortinatly a lot with this disgien of compressor

2004 chevy s-10 hater blows cold or lukewarm air

Well 1996 or 2004 is just a blend door to controll the temp.I see it also shows a heater core temp sensor on the 2004,but not sure if this would cause the problem.Your blend door allows air to pass over your heater core or just draw outside air.Well hope this helps.

'89 Maxima car heater stops blowing warm/hot air

You will have an 'in' and an 'out' hose going to the heater core. Run engine until hot, these two pipe should be both quite hot, if the out pipe feels cooler than the in pipe then it would seem the core is blocked. You say you have no leaks so maybe it would be worth removing both heater pipes, fix one side up to the water main and gently pass water through it. Hopefully lots of Brown sludge should come out.
If both pipes feel hot then the core should be ok. This means it will be an air-distribution fault and maybe the flap is stuck that changes it from hot to cold air.

Heater blows cold air. what needs to be fixed so it blows hot air again.

Typicaly only a few items that can cause this. your thermosat needs to be replaced. But unless it's really cold were you are right now. I would say not what you need. 2. Heater valve or vac line going to it need to be replaced. This valve is a plastick valve that you will find in line with your heater hose that goes to the heater core. Normally found near the firewall. 3. The heater core itself can get pluged. If get the car warmed up and then turn on the heater you can place your hands on the heater hoses right were they go into the fire wall. If one is hot and the other not, you have bad heater core. Also a good way to check the hater valve. The good thing is all items except the heater core are easy to change.

It actually sounds to me like you're low on coolant. My Jeep leaks coolant and whenever it gets low the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.

Hot water runs through the heater core regardless of whether or not your thermostat is open or closed. That's why your heater works in the winter even before the engine is at normal operating temperature. The fact that the heater stops working is a good sign that the thermostat is probably not the culprit.

As for the water pump. If the water pump was bad, your temp gauge would go into the red and stay there. Water pumps generally don't work intermittently. Either it's good and ot works, or it's bad and it doesn't.

However, if you are in fact low on water, as I suspect, it means you probably have a leak somewhere. The leak could be in the water pump housing gasket, so depending on where you take it for repairs, they may try to sell you a new water pump anyhow. So just beware of that.
